REMAINS: Project Notes
These images were shot on 4x5 Type 55 Polaroid Film which provides a negative as well as a print. Ansel Adams loved this film and I do too. It is incredibly tight and holds great detail in the shadows and highlights if exposed and processed carefully. It also affords immediate gratification as I can clear it in sodium sulfite, dry it with a hair dryer and be printing within 10 minutes if I wish.
Unfortunately, this film has become difficult to obtain since Polaroid hit the skids. I keep hearing rumors that it will be available, but as of now it is rare and prohibitively expensive.
I have more images in mind for this project and may be forced to change to standard 4x5 black & white film if the Type 55 does not become available again soon.
I love shooting 4x5 for the control the view camera provides and the thoughtful process it requires.Stylist Jody Olcott was helpful in acquiring props for these shots and consulting on composition.
